Oh, you are one brave knitterly woman, the thought of steeking makes my blood run cold. Wonderful FO!

That's amazing! I love this vest, is it really hard to knit? It looks so complicated.

Cynamar-Steeking is when you continuing knitting in the round instead of binding off stitches when you do neck and armholes, and knit extra stitches that will be cut into later on after you reinforce it with either crochet/hand/machine stitches-it was pretty scary cutting into it.

-knitgal-it was an easy knit -the only scary part was the cutting part.

Steeking sounds like something best left to much more experienced knitters! Thanks, though!
